Re: [opensuse-factory] snapshot 20190909: Change in kmail mail list keyboard navigation behavior

[Sorry for cross post]


after the usual upgrade and reboot today, I noticed a significant kmail list
keyboard navigation behavioral change: usually, one could navigate through the
list of mails with cursor keys (given, the list has focus, of course).
Collapsed groups could be opened with cursor right, and cursor left on the top
level entry could close open groups. Now, cursor left and right step through
the displayed mails, but don't open/collapse mail threads anymore. Up and down
always scrolls the mail body (if no fully displayed).

Also, I'm pretty sure, that keyboard navigation was possible in the mailbox
hierarchy display. Now keyboard navigation ignores the focused item

Is that to be expected? If, yes, what's the rationale? Keyboard navigation of
Qt5 lists is a pretty established usability pattern, that should be kept in
all cases (principle of least astonishment)...

Last, but not least, the changelog seems not to mention such a change.

==== kmail ====

Am I missing something?
